Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
Significant functional enhancements and new 3rd party integration solutions were added to the products as part of this release. Analysis tools for service level history will give both carriers and brokers insight into historical information about how customers are being served and the context for measuring those service levels against a variety of key factors and variables that they can control.
The process of offering and accepting loads has been streamlined and further automated for outside carriers along with enhancements to the PowerBroker internet portal for customers and carriers. Brokers can also quickly see comprehensive up to the minute load offer and acceptance history for each carrier.
A powerful lane analysis tool has been added to PowerBroker to allow brokers to analyze their lanes by carrier margins, effectively letting brokers create their own lane rate index for any market they serve.
There are nearly a dozen enhancements for the McLeod financial solution which is integral to both the LoadMaster and PowerBroker products. Companies can now set up statistical accounts in their general ledger to do cost rollups and establish cost centers with greater ease. Financial reports from the system can now easily calculate ratios of accounting data to non-accounting data such as drivers, employees, customers, tractors, miles, and other variables.
New integration solutions for Internet Truckstop, Tenstreet, Macropoint Lite, Blue Tree Systems, and iBright have been added. The existing LoadMaster integration solutions for mobile communications suppliers Qualcomm and Xata have been enhanced and expanded in this release.
Both the LoadMaster Enterprise and PowerBroker version 11.0 releases will begin shipping immediately.
